My Lack of a Life in Photos

Lately, I've been boycotting Instagram. Well not really boycotting, I just haven't been taking a lot of photos in general. I'm finding it so hard to come up with original photographic material! It seems like everyone now has a camera phone at their finger tips and they are ready to take a picture of their meal, the skyline, the sunset, their toes on the beach, a fancy alcoholic beverage, and a fresh manicure at a moment's notice (don't worry, I'm not making fun of you, I'm guilty of taking all these photos too!)

Check out this college humor video, it's sooooo true. (Even though the song is superbly annoying)

But seriously, in the past two weeks I've only posted one picture. 

That's the hubbers, looking angry in the pool. What's his deal? It's a beautiful day outside and he's in an empty pool!? He just doesn't like when I take his picture, hence the mean mug. 

I do want to get back into taking more photos, but I think it's good to take a little break. 

This past weekend, we took a trip to D.C. because our gym qualified to send a team to the Mid Atlantic Crossfit Regionals (Quick side note, our team was amazing. I saw how much hard work and dedication each of them put into preparing, and it was so inspiring to see them out on the floor busting their butts.) I brought my camera with all intentions of documenting the weekend, but I was just too caught up in the moment and enjoying time with friends that I didn't snap any pics. 

Sometimes I think that's a good thing. Instead of seeing everything through a camera lens or through the screen of your smart phone, just put it down and actually enjoy the moment. The memory will be far more fulfilling than the photo. Agree? 

Update: If you're looking for someone to follow on Instagram that won't have the same photos as everyone else, check this guy out: http://instagram.com/happymundane Somehow he makes photos of ordinary things look really interesting. 


  1. I agree! I think we miss things and fail to be involved in the experience we are trying to document via Facebook, twitter, instragram, vine, etc.

    1. True that Dizzy Lean! Miss you :) Next time I'm in DC I'll give you a holler.
